Healthy Ageing Tour: World champion Blaak wins stage 4

Wild settles for second in Winsum sprint, Pieters stays in lead

Chantal Blaak (Boels Dolmans) won the fourth stage of the Healthy Ageing Tour in Winsum on Saturday. The world champion attacked a 13-rider breakaway in the final three kilometres, but was reeled back in, and managed to save enough energy for the kick to the finish line. She won the sprint ahead of stage 3a winner Kirsten Wild (Wiggle High5) in second place and Monique van de Ree (WaowDeals) in third.

Blaak's victory marks her first win as the world champion, and the fourth win so far for Boels Dolmans at the five-day, six-stage race. Anna van der Breggen won the opening time trial, Amy Pieters won stage 2, and they won the stage 3b team time trial. 

Pieters continues to lead the overall classification by 22 seconds ahead of Blaak and 42 seconds ahead of van der Breggen. The stage race concludes on Sunday with a finale stage 5 circuit race in Groningen. The peloton will do 14 laps around Vismarkt for a total of 94.3km.

The Healthy Ageing Tour's stage 4 was the longest race of the week at 142.9km. The race was held on the Hogeland circuit and finished with three circuits in Winsum.

The 13-rider breakaway cleared the field in the first 50km of the stage as the result of an aggressive start through wide open, windy sections on course, which split the field into several groups.

The decisive move included Boels Dolmans quartet, the top four in the overall classification; leader Amy Pieters, van der Breggen, Blaak and Christine Majerus. Stage 3a winner Kirsten Wild (Wiggle High5) was also in the move with Canyon-SRAM's Lisa Klein and Trixi Worrack, WaowDeals riders Riejanne Markus and Monique van de Ree, Team Virtu's Barbara Guarischi, Emilie Moberg and Mieke Kroger and Natalie van Gogh (Parkhotel Valkenburg).

The large group built over a minute lead on a chase group and an additional 30 seconds to the third group on the road. Although the chase looked like it might merge with the leaders, they never quite closed the gap. Boels Dolmans used their strength in numbers and attacked the breakaway, forcing riders like Wild to chase.

Blaak made a move in the final kilometres, but even though that wasn't successful, she had enough left to win the sprint to the line.
